Looks like a great setlist,I'll check this out.

I went to Compton terrace in 1990. Me and many other first timers did not realize it is located on an Indian reservation. As we were pulling into the parking lot it was taking forever because of a search of cars. One crazy head comes screaming like Paul revere, "the Indians are taking the beer!" For some reason I always think of that guy when I see Compton terrace

Know just for the record that there were two Compton Terraces.
The Indian Reservtion one off the Interstate hosted the Dead visits to the Phoenix area from 1987-1992. The '80, '81, '82, and '83 Compton Terrace shows were at an odd, funky site on the Phx.-Tempe border, shoe-horned in amongst several other local attractions. It was next door to Phoenix Municipal Stadium, where the AAA Phx. Giants played for years as well as several MLB teams during spring training.
There's now an office building and parking lot on the old CT site but in the early eighties they would come every summer and, in and amongst the stadium, an amusement park, planes landing to the south at Sky Harbor, and the Phoenix Zoo across the street, Jerry and the boys would pitch their flag and rock our world.

I'm sure they turned around and sold that beer back on the Res the next day. Must have been hot as hell on this day in August! What were they thinking? Great show, and now if Amare's plane lands on time we might actually win game 5...
